Grilled Redfish on half-shell is enjoyed on a regular basis in our home.
This wonderful, tender and flavorful dish is super easy to make.
Let’s fire up the grill!
Redfish fillets left on half-shell (1 large fillet will feed 1 person)
You favorite Cajun seasoning (Tony’s, Paul Prudhomme’s Redfish Magic, Slap Ya mama, etc…)
Rinse the Redfish fillets with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.
Melt butter and add garlic powder and a dash of liquid smoke to taste. (liquid smoke is very strong and concentrated, a couple of dashes will do it)
Brush Redfish with melted butter mixture.
Place on a 400 degree preheated BBQ grill and cover for 15-20 minutes.
Brush with butter mixture once or twice more while in the process of cooking.
About 5 minutes before removing from the grill sprinkle with your favorite Cajun seasoning (Tony Chachere’s, Paul Prudhomme’s Blackened Redfish Magic) to taste.
Olive oil can be used in place of butter
onion powder, a splash of lemon juice or worcestershire sauce can be added to your butter mixture
